Nya Restriktioner:

På grund av Regeringens nya restriktioner kommer vi från och med måndag 29.11 ta i bruk Coronaintyg kvällstid, från klockan 17:30. Detta för att ha möjligheten att erbjuda våra gäster vårt traditionella julbord även detta år. Man kan från OmaKanta printa ut fysiskt eller ta en skärmbild på sitt intyg för att ta med när man kommer till restaurangen.

Uudet Rajoitukset:

Hallituksen uusien korona rajoitusten myötä joudumme ottamaan käyttöön korona todistuksen tarkastamisen maanantai 29.11 lähtien, illallis aikaan klo 17:30 alkaen. Tämä jotta voimme tarjota asiakkaillemme meidän perinteisen joulupöydän myös tänä vuonna. Todistus voidaan ottaa mukaan ravintolaan paperi versiona OmaKannasta tulostettuna tai näyttökuvana puhelimesta näyttämällä.

New Restrictions:

Due to the Finnish government’s new restrictions, we will from Monday the 29.11 start controlling the Covid-19 certificates evenings from 17:30. This to be able to offer our guest our traditional Christmas buffé even this year. One can from OmaKanta print a physical copy of the certificate or take a screenshot of it with your phone to show when you arrive at the restaurant.

The history of Restaurant Strampen began in 1868 when confectioner Sebastian Coray was granted permission to build a pavilion in the park surrounding the Court of Appeal. Coray commissioned architect C.A. Setterberg to design the summer pavilion. His earlier work included two local landmarks, the Vaasa main Lutheran Church and the Vaasa Orthodox Church. The construction of the summer restaurant lasted for two years, 1868-1869. Coray paid a yearly fee of 100 marks for the lease of the land. The money was used to maintain the grounds of the park. In 1876 restaurateur Heinrich Ernst bought the pavilion and maintained the business for years. The original building had eight corners. In the 1930s the building was modified to its present footprint. In 1980 the terrace was added. Since then it has remained the largest and sunniest terrace in town. In the winter of 1997-1998 the interior was restored and renovated back to its original state.
